Scala, the leading provider of end-to-end solutions for the connected signage market, today announced it will bring together Scala Certified Partners from the Americas for the annual Scala Connected Signage Conference (formerly Scala Partner Conference/MISA User Group Meeting) on September 15 – 16 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Philadelphia.

The Scala Connected Signage Conference is an educational forum for our Scala Certified Partners and customers to exchange ideas and network with industry leaders and peers from around the continent. Attendees from all backgrounds (sales, technical, marketing, etc.) will find the presentations and sessions valuable and the face-to-face time with Scala team members and partners even more valuable.

This year the conference will include sessions specific to Scala Ad Manager (formerly Charting Pro), a new product family that rounds out the Scala Connected Signage platform. Attendees will learn all about Ad Manager and how it completes the Connected Signage platform.
“This has been an exciting year for Scala in so many ways and we look forward to sharing that excitement with our partners and customers,” says Andrea Waldin, Director of Marketing for Scala. “Scala has experienced many changes over the past year including the acquisition of MISC and the formation of our new Scala Connected Signage platform.
